Hey, Amanda here!
What a fun day! Marion Chamber of Commerce and Uptown Marion District created a wonderful event, encouraging people to stop by local businesses. What an honor to be included, and we're so grateful that you, our community, showed up!
I loved seeing so many of you as you picked up your pins and decorated your totes, and we hope you'll keep coming back to visit our shop time and time again!
If you ran out of time today, don't fear! Just come see us with your Marion shoPIN tote this coming week and we'll keep handing out these awesome Swamp Fox Bookstore logo pins. Plus, you should probably treat yourself to a new read while you're at it! ;)
Much Love & Happy Reading!
*Totes can be purchased at the Uptown Marion Welcome Center for $5, while supplies last.
Today's the day for the Marion shoPIN event! Drop by the Marion Chamber of Commerce and grab your exclusive bag to display all the fun pins of local businesses.
